Peda is a sweet dish recipe prepared using khoya. It is mildly flavored with cardamom, has a soft texture and simply melts in the mouth. Lots of sweets are prepared in Indian households on various occasions such as peda, laddu, gulab jamun, rasgulla, etc. Peda is comparatively simple, easy and quick to make. For instance, this recipe calls for just 2 main ingredients and takes less than 15 minutes to be done.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Mawa Peda recipe

Lots of Indian sweets are prepared using khoya, mainly peda and barfi. Unfortunately, khoya is one of the most adultered items sold in the market. Therefore it is best to use homemade khoya to make the sweets. It is a bit time-consuming process but homemade khoya is any day better for your sweet recipes than the store-bought one. And if you are short of time you can make instant khoya. Let’s have a look at the ingredients for mawa peda:

Khoya: Khoya is of different types; hard khoya, soft khoya, granular khoya, etc. I have used the soft khoya for mawa peda recipe. The only difference would be the cooking time of the khoya.

Cardamom powder: I have flavored the peda with just cardamom powder. Further, a sliver of pistachio has been used for the garnish.

Powdered Sugar: To add the sweetness powdered sugar has been used.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
